Not sure what engine that machine uses but they are all similar, you need to prewind the reel before you slip the rope thru the hole, let the spring/reel pull the rope in.

How to change cord victa corvette 160cc 2stroke electronic ignition


On assuming its fitted with a victa 2 stroke engine in which case unscrew the 3 cross head screws on the top plastic cover and remove it. You should then see the top of the engine and the recoil starter. Undo and remove the 3 bolts holding the starter to the engine. Remove the starter housing gently as there will be a large o ring under the stater. Once the starter is off you can undo the centre bolt and remove the recoil pulley and spring. When refitting starter smear a little oil on the large o ring to stop it from being damaged

Winder not going back in


Hi pete are you talking about the starter cord or the cutting cord. If it's the starter try and put some lube spray where the spring for the starter is and it should free up. If it's the cutting cord then you have wound it on wrong or not tight enough. Start it again and if this doesn't help let me know via the reply section

My victor lawn mower pull starter does not work properly


Glen make sure that the coil is spaced properly first. Also check that the wings are coming out properly when you pull the cord. You can check by removing the puller and pulling it while looking to see if the wings appear. If they dont give them some lube spray.

Pull cord won't retract


Hi Susan. It sounds like the spring has either snapped or become un attached. It's going to be a two person job to re do it. It may be worth while going to a scrap metal merchant and getting the recoil starter of an old mower.

The pull cord will not retract back into the saw. When I tried to start the saw, I pulled the cord and now it did not retract back. It is all the way out and will not recoil.


When I have had this happen it means that you need to manually rewind the cord and put some additional tension on the take up pulley. To do this you'll have to open the saw up and untie the handle. Turn the pulley like one turn, put the rope back through the hole and tie the handle back on. All this is done while maintaining tension on the rope.
